I have many memories of Saturdays at King Richard's Faire - some better than others. I remember my parents buying wooden swords for my brothers and a hot pink satin princess hat for me. I also remember them trying to "sell" me to one of the peasant actors!
If you have never attended this six week long annual event, it's time to check it out! King Richard's Faire is the biggest and best Renaissance fair in New England, and an experience you do not want to miss!
King Richard’s Faire is held on 80 wooded acres in Carver. The entire fair is packed with costumed performers both on stage and wandering the grounds. Expect to interact with royalty, jesters, and peasants alike.
Performers include acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, fire eaters and musicians. The performances occur non-stop on eight different stages throughout the massive property.
Be sure to catch one of the jousting events as the King’s handsome knights battle on horseback.
There's magic in the forest, with faeries and dragons to delight visitors young and old.
Indulge your taste buds with decadent delights like massive spit-roasted turkey legs, ringlets of fries, and bowls of chowder or stew.
And no visit to the renaissance era would be complete without a jug of ale or a goblet of wine!
Beware of the tricky salesfolk peddling their wares! There are some fabulous trinkets to be had, but you'll have to haggle with some tough characters first.
The King’s talented artisans have handspun pottery, fabulous jewelry, period clothing, leather, armor, moccasins, kids souvenirs, and much more to offer.
Kids will love the face painting as well as the artistic demonstrations including sword making, glass blowing and portrait painting.
